Research fellow on The Kimberley Rock Art Dating project 2014-The focus of my research is understanding and dating mineral accretionary systems forming in association with aboriginal rock art. Primary applications include isotope geochemistry, geochronology and archaeological science.
My research over the last five years has focused on analysing mineral accretions using a range of geochemical techniques to characterise and understand the formation processes occurring in relation to rock art pigments in north west Australia's Kimberley region. These techniques include uranium-thorium dating, radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis along with analytical techniques such as X-ray diffraction analysis, scanning electron microscopy, electron microprobe analysis and others. Using this knowledge I have applied and adapted both radiocarbon and uranium-series dating techniques to oxalate and phosphate bearing layered mineral accretions, with an aim of generating bracketing ages for different rock art styles comprising the established rock art sequence in the Kimberley region.
